Blood/Gold Dribble Streams


Recommended Posts

I am looking to achieve an effect similar to the one in the E3 Ghost Recon Opening where the blood has that hero dribble following a path. 


- I want to have Gold Dribbling down a marble bust of a head and scatter these over the surface so we have these trails running down the face. These will be a detailed macro shots.

- For the Hero ones I would like to have some artistic control over the movement/path ( I am trying it was a curve now but paint attributes might be better )

- I want to have that effect dribble ( say like water ) has that the path it takes down the surface is slightly noisy


TESTS (I want a mixture of 6's movement and some of its shape and mix in a bit of 7's consistency in its shape.):


I am currently using FLIP and emitting a single droplet and letting is fall down the surface. I have Surface Tension and a bit of Viscosity. I am not sure the best way to control it and I am not convinced FLIP is the answer.  I uploaded my current tests ( really simple ). I want to maintain that natural flow of the fluid and using a curve force is producing this 'pulled' effect that removes the internal variety in the streams ( that flow movement down the path) 


I am not sure I am approaching this in a good way for when we apply it to the head ( will test that soon after I get some more control on the plane ). I am think SOP might be the best bet but the flow movement internal in the drop might be the problem.


Does anyone have experience with an effect like this or maybe some tips? 



HIPs are attached.





I have had a peak at this after some deep searches! I will play around for bit!
